Winter Holiday Packages

A romantic picnic is a wonderful way to keep the spark alive in a relationship. Unfortunately, if you live in an area that's cold most of the year, you might think this activity isn't available to you, but there are still many options to keep romance alive all year long.

Step 1 – Set the right mood:

Cold, winter months, especially during the holiday season with winter holiday packages, might actually be the perfect time for a picnic. Plan for a cozy night alone - send the kids to a friend’s house, turn off the phone and the TV. Make sure to hang all of your Holiday decorations, like a Christmas tree and colored or white lights to set the right mood. Build a fire in your fireplace, light some candles, and turn on some romantic music – my favorite is anything by Frank Sinatra.

Step 2 – Choose the right picnic basket:

Having the right picnic basket can add elegance and sophistication to your special night. Some of the most romantic picnic baskets are from Picnic Time’s English picnic basket collection, such as the Sandringham picnic basket, the Chardonnay picnic basket, or the Windsor picnic basket.

Of course, wine is an essential part of any picnic. A suggestion for a red wine that works well for the holiday season is from Brotherhood Winery, the Holiday Spiced wine. This wonderfully spicy and sweet red wine is a dessert all on it’s own. You can heat the wine for extra flavor and warmth. Keep this wine nice and toasty with one of our insulated picnic wine totes, like the Wine Duffle Driftwood, or choose a picnic basket with an insulated wine tote, like the Nottingham picnic basket.

Step 3 – Pick the right menu:

Once you have your picnic basket, the next thing to do is fill it! A great way to enjoy a picnic is with tasty finger foods. Here’s some examples of items you can include in your picnic basket:

Cheese and Fruit


Smoked salmon bites

Cranberry and cheese toasts

Step 4 – Focus on the right thing … each other:

Place your picnic basket on your picnic blanket and cozy up to your special someone. Let the daily stresses melt away and remember what it’s like to gaze into each other’s eyes and appreciate every curve of their face, and every word they whisper. Enjoy holiday packages and vacation packages!
